The critically lauded voices of the New York Festival of Song concert series ransack the American songbook in a show that the New York Times called “a quirky survey” of “the awkwardness, pain, lust and perversity of interpersonal affairs.” A Modern Person’s Guide to Hooking Up and Breaking Up propels musical theater fans and those who have stopped believing in Cupid’s elves alike through a wincingly funny 90-minute melodic survey of modern romance. A cast that boasts prized soprano Anne-Carolyn Bird, rising mezzo soprano Liza Forrester, tenor Alex Mansoori, and human baritone Andrew Garland lends its lilts to a narrative playlist featuring old-fashioned and newfangled tales of swooning and separation by Irving Berlin, Sondheim, and Noel Coward. After the onstage extravaganza, audiences retire to the upstairs lobby to meet the artists and test out new pet names inspired by the show.
